Best of 2022: Best story

0 24

This year, we decided to combine the Best Story and the previous Most Interesting Characters categories, as we agreed after a meeting with the editors that they often overlap a lot. This also applies to this year’s nominations. Few great stories can do without heroes, heroines, villains and villains, but also ordinary non-black and white people whose motivations make sense, so we only repeat what was said before about interesting characters. So who told us the best in 2022?

3rd Place: Citizen Sleeper






The sleeper must wake up, especially when he is a sleeper-citizen. In a fascinating mix of virtual tabletop RPG and visual novel, Citizen Sleeper tells the story of an escaped cyborg hiding from his former owners on a space station. There, at first, he fights for his bare life, or rather keeps his vital functions going, but in every corner there is a secret waiting to be explored and an interesting story begging to be told. Citizen Sleeper requires a lot of reading, but like Disco Elysium, it will reward you handsomely. You will really care about its characters, as well as the decisions that will or will not shape their destinies. A well deserved bronze medal.

2nd place: Repentance



Repentance



Detective games are not a new genre, but most of them have only one correct solution and will point you well in its direction. But Pentiment has the audacity not to give you absolution for a solved case. Didn’t have time to gather enough evidence? Hit the wrong track? You’re out of luck, Andreas Maler wants to throw a murder (or two) at someone. And you live happily with that unjust accusation even after a quarter of a century, when the Tassing of Bavaria almost forgot the first case, although it marked it forever.

Repentance shines not only with the story it tells, but also with the attention to detail of how it tells it. Whether it’s the font work or how the city and its people change based on your decisions. And of course you want to go back to the beginning and correct what you did blindly the first time, but you will never get enough time to know all the nuances of the fates of individual characters, so value every scratched word carefully with a quill.

First place: God of War Ragnarök



God of War Ragnarök



Four years ago, Kratos and Atreus won only bronze in this category, this year, with the start of the legendary Fimbulwinter, they went for gold together. In many ways, the story of Ragnarök is even more emotional than the first part of the Nordic adventure: Kratos raised his protector, while Atreus is going through puberty, trying to understand who he is and master his abilities of ‘ awakening. Nevertheless, it deserves an honorable mention in the unofficial Teenagers Who Didn’t Mess With Us category.

But the narrative is not only about the central couple and practically you will not meet an uninteresting secondary character or line in it, all the dialogues have their meaning and the rest of the game’s production seems somewhat backward in ‘terms of writing after finishing Ragnarök. . Where 2018’s God of War was an intimate father-son story, this year’s installment shuffles the cards of a more complex entanglement of relationships, sparing unexpected twists and exploring the themes of family time, fate or revenge. Norse mythology has never been so unpredictable and at the same time less satisfying.
